When we attended the Belle Plaine, KS tulip festival earlier this year, Brooke and I spotted this wonderful "hankie" shirt that a crafter had for sale. We both loved it, but it's price was in the $50's. Sooooo, I decided to try one myself.
I used a t-shirt that I already had for my first one. Found some vintage hankies at a thrift store in Spearfish. I placed mine a little differently than the inspiration piece.
And I did the "Julie Sleeves" as an added touch. (see other blogpost)
This project kinda refreshed my memory on how tricky it can be to sew on t-shirt material.
But I like the way it turned out. Great gift idea. And now I'm addicted to vintage hankies!! I've already found a couple of other projects for them. Even the ones that are kinda raggedy.
When Justin, Brooke, and family came to Spearfish in July to visit us, Brooke and I went to all the thrift stores in town and looked for hankies and cotton or linen shirts (easier to sew on). I believe some folks will get some as gift in the next year or 2.
Brooke finished hers in September. It'll be mighty hard to beat this one! Sooooo pretty!!
